Asking for clarification

By admin 10 comments

When we are talking to somebody, we don’t always understand everything they say.

There are two useful techniques for dealing with this.

Firstly, we can simply ask them to repeat what they said.

  • Could you say that again please?
  • I didn’t follow that. Could you repeat it?

Secondly, we can ask them to say again a specific piece of information.

  • What time did you say?
  • Where exactly are we to meet?

There is a mistake in this sentence.
“I didin’t follow that. Could you repeat it?”
